"WASHINGTON, March 26 ? More than 20 months ago, the United States secretly sent Iran a diplomatic protest charging that Tehran was supplying lethal roadside explosive devices to Shiite extremists in Iraq, according to American officials familiar with the message.
Explosively Formed Penetrators The July 19, 2005, protest ? blandly titled ?Message from the United States to the Government of Iran? ? informed the Iranians that a British soldier had been killed by one of the devices in Maysan Province in eastern Iraq.
The complaint said that the Shiite militants who planted the device had longstanding ties to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran, and that the Revolutionary Guards and Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia had been training Iraqi Shiite insurgents in Iran and supplying them with bomb-making equipment.
?We will continue to judge Iran by its actions in Iraq,? the protest added.
The time for ‘judging’ is past.
